The Mis-education and Re-education of a software tester is a topic that I see discussed heavily. In the past I have reflected back about my personal education as a software tester, and what I had to contribute myself to this. After having read Pete McBreen’s Software Craftsmanship – The New Imperative I started to understand part of the problem. In chapter 2 McBreen explains most flaws of the Software Engineering metaphor. This is my first blog post in the Software Craftsmanship week 2010. I will spend some thoughts on related topics over the course of the whole week. Today, I would like to take a closer look on educational models for testers – in Software Engineering and what clever people have come up with for compensation.
